Borders may be closed and education opportunities abroad may be suspended, but this does not mean that workers and students stop gaining overseas experience. MP Mariam Jaafar, who made this point in Parliament on Wednesday (Mar 3), said the COVID-19 pandemic also presents opportunities for workers to take on jobs anywhere in the world. She said there is a lot to be gained from working with "virtual" teams around the world with the help of technology. She wanted to know how the Government will provide such opportunities.
